Ventilation Strategy The adaptive reuse of the building splits it in two parts according to program and north/south orientation; this division is done via the atrium. The north face of the building is dedicated to design and production with controlled heating, cooling, and ventilation, while the south end showroom of the building uses a mix of passive strategies including green wall ventilation, trapping/releasing heat via external greenhouses, and controlled mechanical systems.

Structural Strategy The intention of recycling the original building materials. The changes made to structure included minimal demolishment for an atrium to provide natural ventilation. Additionally, an interior/exterior sloped running track wraps the exterior and is linked with light weight steel structural members.
